Adversity draws men together and produces beauty and harmony
in life’s relationships, just as the cold of winter produces ice-flowers
on the window-panes, which vanish with the warmth
. Kiekegaard

I love how this turned out…I painted the flowers in shades of pink and thought of poppies while I painted to give them an extra feeling of reality as if frozen in time…we who live with five months of winter often see shapes in the frosted panes especially in the early morning before the sun comes out to chase them away…
Beauty and harmony emerging from adversity is always awe inspiring
